The clinical relationship between the removable partial denture cast occlusal rest and the corresponding rest seat was examined. Under the conditions of the study, it was found that rests of mandibular Class I and II removable partial dentures fit significantly better than those of mandibular Class III and IV prostheses. No significant difference was noted between similar types of maxillary removable partial dentures in this regard. In evaluating the fit of specific portions of the occlusal rest, it was found that the marginal ridge zone was more closely adapted to the rest seat than other zones for all types of removable partial dentures. However, contact, as defined in this analysis, was found to exist on a random basis in all four quadrants of the occlusal rests evaluated. In spite of this fact, one fifth of the occlusal rests did not contact the opposing rest seat at any point. Improved fit with length of service was not substantiated by a cross-sectional analysis. Suggestions were made to assist the clinician in achieving a better fit between the framework and dentition in removable partial dentures.
